myTTB Activate Identity


Importers must activate their entity in myTTB before they can file Craft Beverage Modernization Act (CBMA) refund claims. In order to grant importers access to myTTB, TTB relies on information in Permits Online, particularly the Key Contact information for the business entity. This Key Contact information must be accurate and up-to-date or you may experience delays in obtaining access to the CBMA importer refund claims system and, ultimately, your ability to submit a claim.

Note: If you are a Foreign Producer, you do not have to activate an entity. Please see the Foreign Producer User Guide.
